ESS Accessibility for Visually Impaired Employees


We use Employee Self Service (ESS) for our employees to update their presonal information (Address, Emergency Contacts, EMail Address) and to view their Earning Statement, We also are in the process of rolling out the ESS Leave Request Tool. For employees who are visually impaired and use products such as JAWS, there are accessibilty issues with ESS.

I am trying to find any SAP customers that have implemented a solution that assists the visually impaired employees with ESS accessibility issue. Some of the questions we have are:

What steps has your organization taken to make your ESS implementation more accessible to visually impaired employees?

Did you use any specific standards or guidelines during configuration?

What kind of customization was necessary?

What kind of changes had to be made to electronic documents (e.g. Remuneration Statements, reports, etc.) to make them readable with accommodation software for the visually impaired?

Any examples would be helpful.

Thank you for any information you can provide.

    Hi Barb,

    All the SAP employee self services applications are compliant to accessibility standards. If you are looking for configuration of JAWS then you can check the following link.
